I'm trying to install a recompiled Satellite 6 on Scientific Linux 7.0 (essentially RHEL 7.0 recompiled from source)

Steps to reproduce:
1) Fresh install of Satellite 6 via katello-installer
2) Log in with admin account
3) Click Organizations -> Manage Organizations -> New Organization
4) Fill out Name, Label, Description. Click Submit

This returns an error page with the following output:

Task 3991a254-a044-40c9-9dda-b6d897102771: RuntimeError: missing :remote_user

If you feel this is an error with Satellite 6 itself, please open a new issue with Foreman ticketing system, You would probably need to attach the Full trace and relevant log entries. 

Task 3991a254-a044-40c9-9dda-b6d897102771: RuntimeError: missing :remote_user
app/controllers/concerns/foreman/controller/taxonomies_controller.rb:53:in `create'
app/models/concerns/foreman/thread_session.rb:33:in `clear_thread'
lib/middleware/catch_json_parse_errors.rb:9:in `call' 

Let me know if there are any other relevant logs to attach.

We don't support Satellite 6 upstream, if you would like to re-compile Katello 2.0 for Scientific Linux we may be able to help walkthrough the issues you encounter.
